Want help with choosing a phone please
So its time to replace my trusty nexus 4. I've had it for 2 - 2.5 years with no issues. I have been searching and googling my butt off, I have found some phones but would like suggestions please. My main uses are podcasts, Bluetooth streaming Pandora in the car. Lots of web surfing and reading articles. I really don't do alot of gaming if at all.

What I'm looking for with a $200-$250 max budget.

Android os with plenty of third party rom support.
Screen size 5" or larger
Must have enough battery to last me all day under moderate Usage.
A screen I can see when its sunny outside
Decent speakers, I want to be able to hear videos and stuff without cupping my hands.
Must have T-Mobile 4g lte support
SD card support
Nfc charging
Would like an HD screen but its not a nessity

The phones I have found that meet some of my list that I was considering.
Lenovo k3 note
Asus zenfone 2
Huawei mate 7
Oneplus one & two
Sony xperia z
Lg g3

The mate 7 and G3 are fantastic devices but i think more than your budget Allows..the mate especially? I myself have nearly pulled the trigger on the mate 7 and its well over $600 here in Canada.

Id say mate 7 unless you want development because there is hardly any for it ( which is why i didn't get it) in which case G3

Who actually HAS this phone? It is just in presale, available from mid-September, so how can you recommend a phone that is not in the sales market yet?

What? there are many ppl who has this phone actually, and there are videos on YT. This is the best phone you can get right now for the money, without a SINGLE doubt.

That is completely debatable. Just remember you get what you pay for.

The mate 7 looks sweet but with T-Mobile I would only be limited to 2g data speeds. Also considering that battery life is really my main concern it looks like the g3's battery sucks, my nexus 4 I get 2hrs 50mins on screen time with brightness just slightly above the lowest setting.
