Chime in: Is the HP Elite x3 or Alcatel Idol 4S camera better?

That question is the subject of a discussion going down in the Windows Central Forums right now

I bought the hp elite x3 but I am not quite sure if it has a better camera then the Alcatel idol 4s I have been searching everywhere for this awnser and cannot seem to find it and how do these two compare camera wise to the 1520 best to the worst

Compared to the Lumia 950, both phones feel a little weak, but they're also the only new phones available if you're continuing with Windows 10. In our experiences, both phones have had camera weaknesses, but firmware updates for the Elite x3 at least helped.

The Idol 4S is perhaps the weaker of the two, but it's still capable of taking good photos if you persevere. Beauty is also in the eye of the beholder, and you might have different opinions on how your Idol or Elite x3 photos look compared to us. That's why we want to hear from you.

So if you have experience with either or both phones, hit the forums thread below and share your experience.

Which has a better camera: HP Elite x3 or Alcatel Idol 4S?
