Dynamic range question

Let's say you have two cameras, one a compact/phone camera and the other an SLR. If they both take a photo of the same scene where the scene's dynamic range is within the ranges of both cameras, e.g. the histogram is concentrated in the middle and not on the edges.

Assuming equal quality of lens/processing etc., should the photos be equally good or is it still possible that the larger camera will have better color reproduction? I guess my question is whether a camera with a larger dynamic range will always have a larger "spread"/distribution of colors.
