True, still the original cover is mostly alluminum and plastic, but it
is designed so that it does not interfere with the internal antenna.

Theroetically the performance should not be significantly affected,
since the permeability of aluminum is roughly the same as the air,
however it might have some impact on battery life if used from within
the box, especially closed.
