Bad signal after housing swap

Hi, I swapped my iPhone 6 housing and now I have bad signal. I swapped al the tiny metal parts and I've done it before and I haven't experienced any problems before. Will a fake, Aliexpress housing decrease cellular signal? Or is this a motherboard problem? Tried everything and nothing works. The sim card has good signal in other iPhones and I even tried the original metal parts from an working iPhone 6.

Thanks in advance.

Yes. Fake housings do not have conductive areas trimmed like the original ones. Compare the housings, if you find areas around the screw holes are trimmed on the original case but not on your case, the signal reception will be very bad.

Thanks for your answer. What will be the best website for purchasing housings?
