A Samsung Galaxy S II prototype escaped a bit early from the factory and we already have its first review, complete with plenty of live shots, camera samples and screenshots. The great news is that the smarphone did great, really impressing the reviewers.

We already met the Galaxy S II on the MWC and spent some great time with it. But the guys at got even luckier and got a unit in the comfort of their office.

Here are some head-to-head shots with XPERIA X10:

The Galaxy S II is "faster, thinner and lighter" than its predecessor.

Samsung Galaxy S II user interface made 10+ min video demonstration of the UI. Their early prototype unit was already pretty smooth, running on the latest Android 2.3 Gingerbread. However it was missing the new TouchWiz 4.0 launcher that the final version is supposed to be featuring.

The review also brought us plenty of camera and 1080p video samples. The quality is pretty impressive for a beta unit and makes us all the more eager to see what the final units will be capable of.

The 1080p footage looks great too so the Galaxy S II might turns to be the best video recorder in the smartphone family. Just don't forget to click that 1080p button and switch to fullscreen to enjoy the videos in their full shine.
