Guy,

S/N is primarily a function of the number of photons each pixel collects. Smaller sensors have smaller pixels and collect less light than larger sensor pixels.

Image quality is also a function of a sensors dynamic range.

I would gladly give up 1 stop in S/N for an additional step in dynamic range.
