Following your recommendation on the kali forums I’ve installed the latest pocket kali and updated to the current 4.15.12 stable, battery seems to work quite well so I’m very happy about it so far, thanks a lot.
There is one issue with screen resolution though. On my Acer One 10 I have a native resolution of 1200×1900 (smartphone-like screen orientation, when rotated this is my equivalent of 1900×1200), and while on the login screen I get my native resolution as expected, when logging in to any user on any desktop setting, my resolution switches to 1152×720.
I do get a flicker when logging in so it actually changes the resolution, and the difference once logged in is also very visible. Tried to change scaling, but it really is a resolution difference.
It isn’t just a default setting issue, as when I go to the Display settings, it still shows 1200×1920 as currently active, and while xrandr tells me that in reality 1152×720 is my current resolution (which sounds plausible), when trying to set it back to 1200×1920 xrandr accepts the command but does nothing, like if it was already the active resolution. If it change it to something else then ‘back’ to 1200×1920, I get the same incorrect resolution as after logging in.
In short, it seems like when I log into my desktop a different resolution is forced, which cannot be changed back to my native as the system already believes it is set. Quite frustrating tbh.
Should I update to 4.16? This is a fresh install after a complete format, only thing I’ve done is to update the kernel to latest stable.

The Pocket-Kali image sets the resolutions through the following autostart script:
cat ~/.config/autostart/xrandr.desktop [Desktop Entry] Exec=/usr/bin/xrandr --output DSI-1 --scale 0.65x0.65 Icon=system-run Path= Name=xrandr Terminal=false Type=Application
You can either:
1. Change the resolution in that file if you require a fractional scaling, or
2. use the scaling factor in the display setting and delete the file if a whole number suffices
I you want to completely rid the system of the xrand autostart script you also have to delete it in “/etc/skel/.config/autostart/”
Hope that helps,

Thank you once again, this was it. Setting to 1×1 changed to proper resolution.
