The one difference you can't see is probably the #1 difference to me for the following reasons.

The extra stop of noise only comes at shallower DOF with FF. Stopped down to be equivalent to APS-C and there is little difference in low-light performance. Low-light performance only *comes* with shallower DOF...it does not have better low-light performance at equivalent DOF.

In theory yes assuming sensors between FF and APS-C have the same design but just different in sizes. In reality you don't have to shoot FF at equivalent DOF of APS-C such as in low-light/evening events. Even F2.8 has sufficient DOF on FF on a stage from distance with 70-200L II for example such as you shoot 6D/5D3 @200mm vs 70D @125mm both at F2.8.  6D/5D3 will win easily at the same ISO such as ISO 1600.
