same with me. tried everything to use evil with emacs (since i really wanted to use orgmode), but it's just not the same. the emacs keybinds get in the way of vim mode imho.

You definitely need to add a bunch of extra emacs configuration on top of the standard evil-mode stuff to get a fully intergrated emacs<->vim environment. On top of that, for most meta modes (e.g. dired, magit) you'll have to either find an evil-compat set of bindings, write your own, or get used to the emacs way of doing things in these special buffers.
