Once the question is "which one is better", I'm gonna take that technically and stick with Hendrix, by far a better musician to me.

One man vs an entire band of men. Ok, lessee here...

Jimi was good on guitar, and I've never heard him on any other instrument, but his songwriting was depressing af. He 'borrowed' a lot from other artists too. The Beatles were extremely proficient songwriters and blazed a musical trail of their own.

So given that knowledge, on a scale from 1-5, with 5 being great and 1 being crap, here's my ratings:

Bass
Jimi=0 | Paul=3

Drums
Jimi=0 | Ringo=2

Vocals
Jimi=2 | John/Paul/George/Ringo=4

Guitar
Jimi=4 | George/John/Paul=3

Overall Songwriting
Jimi=3 | Beatles=5

Jimi=9
Beatles=17

^ Hey, I like the idea of reducing the vexing question of "better" to a system of numbers. That's science!

My personal preference is for the Beatles material, but as you point out, there were four of them contributing to the whole, whereas Hendrix, afaik, didn't get a lot of creative help from his band.

When it comes to guitar pyrotechnics, Hendrix is a clear winner, but John Lennon, I recently learned, was quite a sly craftsman on guitar:-
