Not that manufactures can't make a high density sensor that delivers good results - they can and do, but if they take the same number of pixels and spread it across a larger area the results will have better color, lower noise and higher quality - every time.

Physics don't care about popularity contests or soothing feelings of insecurity over camera purchases. Physics just is

I wonder if the OP realizes that if he took his hypothesis and thought it out further, he would eventually have to ask: "Is m43 really better than cell phones? and why?"

"if they take the same number of pixels and spread it across a larger area the results will have better color, lower noise and higher quality - every time."

Which has zilch to do with density and everything to do with the increase in the light gathering capacity of the sensor. It is the "larger area" that matters, not the pixel density. This has been proven time and again.

The 16mp sensors all stomp the 12mp sensors in the m4/3 world despite their higher pixel density. The 24mp APS sensor stomps the 16mp m4/3 sensor despite having the same density, because of the larger area. It really is all about the total light sensitive area on the sensor.
