EDIT: Some privacy settings will make this not work

Today I found a way to see anyone's profile as if they are your friend using the Facebook app for android.

Find a post they have commented on.

Tap on their profile pic in the comments

As their profile is loading quickly select the photos tab.

Now you can see their photos.. if you wait too long the page will load and you will be stuck on the basic profile info with the choice to add them as a friend.

Random and pointless but I found it interesting none the less

Which FB app version are you talking about? Can't tap on profile pic in comments, only on name: and if I do that and quickly press Photo nothing shows up.

It works on the latest version. Click someone's name and IMMEDIATELY click on Photos. It'll begin loading their Photo Albums lol

Found out it doesn't work if they have their photos blocked to certain people. Most people sent that smart though.

Try using on a few people. Anyone who gives limited access to their profile to even their friends won't work.

Knowing Facebook, and their app... this will be fixed in the next update, which is in a year or two... :facepalm:
