While all Samsung and Infinix phones have glass backs, the Rome Green version has an eco-leather back instead.

Both phones are more than capable for photos and videos and I have to give it to Infinix as we get 4K 60fps video on both front and main camera videos. The quality, brightness, colour saturation and sharpness of the videos is incredible and you can now comfortably vlog using the front camera of the Zero 30.
I even captured a vlog shot on 4K and you can watch it below
