There are not many advantages, but the lack of compatibility makes 2.4 a niche product.

Nearly any hardware is able to read 2.3 tags, I had a lot of issues with my car radio when I tried to use 2.4 tags.

The lack of hardware support also never will change, if you look at the date, when the 2.4 standard was finalized 14 years ago...
