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.

Yes, you are right. The original question as posed does not admit of a straightforward answer. That's why I said "it depends".
