Bought a 10A camera, 10MP and 3x zoom. It feels really bad that the camera cannot take decent quality pictures when the flash is turned off. Let me know if there is a fix.
Given it is relatively cheap $100 sony and $150 cannon or nikon. Is it something I should accept at that?

For indoor use (low light) the flash in Auto mode gives you the best results. If you want to capture the image with available light and without a tripod then turn the "Stabilizer" mode to On. This will force the ISO (camera sensitivity) higher and reduce the image blur caused by camera shake. You can also set the ISO higher maually to see which setting gives you the best results.
If you want to have the best possible indoor image, then set the flash mode to SL (Slow Sync), set the ISO to 200 or lower and use a tripod. This will give very good lighting on the foreground subject yet will capture the background with room lighting and have great detail and clarity.
