It definitely has a lower build quality compared to all other NEX, except the 3N. It 's roughly the same build as the 3N, same plain plastic finish.

But the A6000 is made out of mag-alloy, not plastic.

It is not, Sony removed that part of the marketing. There may have been some preproduction models that were but it isn't now. The shell is poly/plastic/composite and supported at least in part by a metal infrastructure/frame.

Just curious where the actual facts are on this, rather than Sony pulling the reference in their video.

If you took the trouble to visit a camera store and examined an A6000 you would immediately see that it is not mag-alloy, but plastic. You need to make the effort.

Top and bottom plates are clearly metal.  Front plate feels like metal too. Perhaps YOU should go back to the camera store.
