Samsung elected not to include all the texture compression formats when they integrated the Mali-400 GPU into the Exynos chip that powers the Galaxy S II. This is because some formats are patented and would require Samsung to pay a fee to the patent-holder to support them.
Because the S II was the first high-end phone not to support these formats, most game vendors weren't ready to use alternative texture compression formats in their games, and such games will draw with missing textures, like in your screenshot. Also, at the time the S II came out, Google Play made it very hard to support multiple texture formats with one app: you had to include all the formats in one APK file, making it unnecessarily large.
It's now much easier to build for different compression formats and automatically select the right textures for the device you're running on.
