PowerShot ELPH 150 IS has noisy, out-of-focus pictures. Any way to correct, other than editing?

I purchased a PowerShot ELPH 150 IS the end of November 2015.  After trying it out, it seemed all the pictures I took were out-of-focus.  I was offered the option of returning for repair, which I accepted.  The repair people replaced it with a PowerShot ELPH 160 IS, which is a cheaper camera, with less capability.  I never tried it.  After negotiation with Canon Customer Relations, they accepted the 160 back and sent me another 150.  We took about 60 pictures over Christmas and after loading them to my computer at home, I found just about all the pictures were not very sharp and had a lot of noise.  Most were taken inside in normal room lighting conditions.  They were taken in P Mode, L size, ISO Auto, Continuous AF with canter frame.  Most of the pictures were taken at 1/60 second, f3.0, ISO 800.  Some ended up at ISO 400 and were a little sharper. 

Any ideas on what I can change on the camera settings to get better pictures?
