An 8.3x APS-C zoom lens at that size and that price will always come with compromises. In that regard every lens manufacturer will have it as a weak point.

Canon is actually regarded as a great lens producer. If you look at it objectively, the 18-150 is actually quite good for what it is: a relatively very compact lens with good image quality and a good reputation. But due to its 8.3x zoom and size and price there will always be a compromise. The compromise for this lens isn't actually all that big. If you don't want to compromise at all, well then good luck in your venture of looking for a similar lens with that IQ at that price and size point.
