The Sony Ericsson Yari has capitalized on its media capabilities. The Media Center is a flash based menu which lists Photos, Music, Games, Videos and RSS Feeds in one menu. Users can utilize the accelerometer and make browsing and selecting these options much faster.
The Music Player is similar to Walkman's Player version 3.0 and works just as well. The Yari supports multiple file types including MP3, WMA, WAV and M4A. The player features an equalizer and can be made to run in the background while performing other tasks.
The Sony Ericsson Yari photo gallery showcases a user's saved photographs taken with the 5 megapixel camera as well as preloaded wallpapers. The Yari also features a GPS tracker which can also geotag images. It allows users to tag a specific place or check the tag of one already set, and then be taken directly to its location with the preloaded Google Maps app.
In addition to its great gaming possibilities, the Sony Ericsson Yari also promotes decent messaging functions. This mobile device handles many common types of messages as well as push emails although attached documents such as .xls, .doc, .pdf files are not supported.

Web pages are rendered well and can be viewed in either landscape or portrait view, customizable by tilting the screen.
