Which is better? Noise is bigger in raw, it seems that jpg is smoother.

A raw file is not an image. It is raw sensor data (hence the name). It has to be processed - one option is letting it do in camera which results in the jpg.  So whenever there's an image on your monitor, you're not seeing a raw file but a processed image based on this raw sensor data.

If you want noise reduction - apply noise reduction. If you want sharpening - apply sharpening (both of which is what the camera does when creating a jpg out of it's raw data).

If you don't see the point in using raw files - save the time and space and just shoot jpg.
