What battery life are you getting? Mine lasts around two days on average and that's pretty good for a smartphone (and certainly better than the few people I know that own an iPhone 4)

I have iPhone 3G and then changed to iPhone 4. And I got N8 recently. I can say the usage of N8 is more frequently than iPhone now. When I'm driving, I use N8's FM transmitter to playback my MP3 collections in the phone. Sometimes, using OVI map for navigation. Photos shooting and video capturing will only use the new N8 phone to do so. Then upload to facebook very easy by using Pixelpipe. I'm going to store my working files into N8 now so that I can fully utilize the mail client to send attachment files.
However, still waiting for an improved web browser as the default fonts are always not optimized to proper size for good surfing. So, sometimes still need to use iPhone's Safari for web surfing.

The only two apps that I use on my iPhone that I don't think are available on the N8 are Dropbox and Evernote. Has anyone found a replacement for them?

I have not used Dropbox or Evernote so I don't know what functions they provide, but Pixelpipe is available for the N8 and both protocols are supported.

This might work for Dropbox: http://lifehacker.com/5706948/dropda...box-via-webdav

Or, if you just want cloud storage and aren't particularly attached to Dropbox, there's this: https://www.sugarsync.com/

Evernote's way cool. Nothing like that for S^3 right now as far as I know.

I kind of wish Nokia would bring back the much maligned Lifeblog, which was the closest thing to Evernote for Symbian that I can think of. I quite liked it and only stopped using it because I couldn't select where it stored things.
