We have had several customers get in touch complaining that on their devices/browsers the slide-out reviews tab gets in the way of core functionality/browsing of our store
On further investigation this is happening on tablets or when the customers has implemented accessibility options for their screen (e.g. larger text)
Rather than try to minimise the slide-out - which will negatively impact conversion for everyone else - can you not give the tab a small 'X' so that customers who have seen the score, got the message, browsed reviews etc, can then dismiss it to get on with the critical business of shopping!
