The time proven Media center is the core of the multimedia features in the phone. It is vital enough to have a dedicated shortslit on the left soft key in standby.

The Media center menu lists the Photo, Music, Video, Games, Web Feeds, TV and Settings icons. The current pick is highlighted and the count of included files is displayed. You may opt for portrait or landscape classy screen orientation.

Sony Ericsson C702 is equipped with the Sony Ericsson Music Player 3.0. The player supports MP3, AAC, and AAC+, WAV, WMA, M4A and Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) file formats and sports the MegaBass equalizer preset. The player can naturally be set to run in the background. If you are not willing to utilize the media player step-by-step structure, you can directly play a file through the file manager with its classic flat tree structure. Sony Ericsson C702 doesn't offer additional player skins. Extras, as Shake control and SensMe are not supported by C702.

If you are willing to find a particular song, but know just a part of its name, don't worry, just type it in track list and the phone will automatically find and display it. If you're not using some of the music options, you can disable them in the options menu.

The video player, previously found in the entertainment sector, is now accommodated in the media center as well. It supports fast-forwarding and rewinding, as well as playing clips in slow motion. The interface is simple but stylish, although it fails to impress from a functional point of view.
