Both. They both are not alternative to eachother but complimentary.
Content is important or not is a silly question as, if you don't want content to be there in the website then what else?

Unique and quality content creation on regular basis adds in total scope of keywords, while links help you compete for that content with that of others.

I think both works simultaneously. When you create a good and quality content than it will automatically share by users and hence help you to get natural backlinks. So, according to me both are essential factor in terms of seo.

Content is king as always. Quality content will bring more traffic which will give a good signal to Google's algo.

Today, Google is more focused on the importance of content, I remember reading an article about Google will drop backlink in the coming time ... but the recognition is strange because the backlink is a measure of reputation.

I don't believe backlinks come out of thin air. You need content to build them as well. So content is definitely important.

Quality content earns links, therefore, so for me it is link and SEO. So, t it is better to spend your time and money for hiring better resources who can create quality content that will earn links than on link building itself.
When we do SEO for a site, then we should focus on the content and improvements of user experience as it works for all over the time.

I think most of the time these 2 need to be together, as great content attract backlinks and also boost user signal.

But I still found a lot of site ranked on 1st page of Google with just 100+ words of content, but lot of backlinks.

Content is king is plastered everywhere on the internet so that is important! However, it's very difficult to rank well without any backlinks! Two pronged strategy here!

So you're saying content isn't important for search engines? What do they try index in that case? Only backlinks?

if you know quality content is able to generate good no. of backlinks from relevant external resources and that will also help to your audiences for understanding about your niches so that they will be engaged then why are bother about linkbuilding as this is against the Google TOS.
