I purchased an EOS Rebel T3 about 4 months ago after using a friends Rebel for several months. My new camera does not provide the vivid colors similar to the previous Rebel. The sky blues are murky grey, very little contrast, pictures just not vivid. My friend took a picture with his I5 phone and the quality was muach better than the same picture, at the same time, that I took with my new Rebel.
Is there a setting that is incorrect? I have tried various auto settings...auto, mountains, etc. There appears to be no change in the clarity.

At the size I'm seeing it the majority of it looks pretty good on my monitor. Have you taken the time to fine tune the things available to you?

You make these settings before you shoot the photo. But as suggested above, post processing is by far the best if you want the utmost in realism.
Did you look at the scene you were shooting at the time? I mean really look at it? I bet the T3 made the imagine fairly closely to what it saw.
"... they look like they were colored by a kindergarten kid." You don't want this to happen to your photos do you?
This is exactly how most iphones do it. And it seems that some people expect all pictures to look that way. The iphone is a phone that takes pictures not a camera that you can talk on!
At this point in your new hobby of photography, I would recommend you avoid RAW. At least until you acquire more working knowledge of post-processing.
