I usually reply with "it was a thousand dollars" and then either walk away, or just keep my eyes low like... yup, it happened. Thats how much it costs. Anyone else notice that people consider it unthinkable to have a phone this expensive and this large? But realistically they would love to have one and rock out on Garageband or play VainGlory or Real Racing 3 or something. Its definitely worth the money.
