Cars these days are safe. They can still be very fast, but they’re also constrained by stringent crash regulations and emissions regulations and pedestrian safety standards.

Moto X (2014) Review: Still The Android Phone For Everyone

The original Moto X, which debuted last year, was a different breed of smartphone. Rather than trying to build a beast with the best screen and the most horsepower, Motorola focused on the user experience above all else.
