You are promoting form over function.There are highebdh aluminum smartphones by millions and millions, and their wireless coms work without magic
A solution is simply: you left a very thin window for radio signals and cover it with rubber. Lots of aluminum phones had this solution.
Other solution is to add rubber pieces on aluminum edges, in this way you get shock protection and a way for radio signals, even better grip and even they can work as surface contact when using in a table.
What you are describing are 'work arounds' for having chosen the wrong case material. That results in compromised antennas and, "you're holding it wrong".
A far better solution is to simply make the case out of a properly chosen material that does not block the very signals you are trying to use.
