The original question was whether "bigger pixels" were "less noisy". Apparently the answer is "it depends".

What is "less noisy"? Pixels, image?

What are you comparing, one big pixel to several smaller pixels on its place? Something else?

How do you define "noisy"?

"It depends" without an explanation of the terms and factors (and analysis of dominant trends) is hardly ever an answer.
