I believe we can get better image by having lower pixel density.

You got that backwards. Generally higher density gives a better image.

But as with everything, not just photography, it is the whole system that matters not just one factor. We are limited by the weakest link. There is no benefit to go to a higher resolution sensor if for example the lens is not up to the task.

The biggest advantage to high pixel density is that the AA filter can be eliminated (or at least weakened) without adding artifacts.

There is very little correlation with pixel density to noise or DR. This has been proven beyond a doubt by every new camera that hits the market.
