Google "In June of 2013, I made an interesting discovery about the Android phone (a Motorola Droid X2) which I was using at the time: it was silently sending a considerable amount of sensitive information to Motorola, and to compound the problem, a great deal of it was over an unencrypted HTTP channel."

At the time of the Droid X2? Motorola.

Motorola hasn't released a Google-designed phone yet. And the few phones they've released since Google bought them were already in the pipeline before they were bought out.

IOW, anti-Google FUD much?

Now, once the new Google-Motorola phone is released, everyone can take it apart and see if there's any phone-home spyware included. And then proceed to pillory Google for it.

Google has owned motorola for a while, so if these motorola devices are still "phoning home" then it falls under google's umbrella of responsibility.
