Samsung Galaxy S8+ Pros: The only significant advantage that I see for the Galaxy S8+ is the lower asking price and potential price cut it will get now. The difference in specs, however, will be in overall performance.

Samsung Galaxy S9+ Pros: The difference in performance is expected as it has a newer chipset with faster CPU and better GPU, a 6GB of RAM and wider variety of storage size. The new dual camera setup is also a big improvement.

The Samsung Galaxy S9+ improved upon the S8+ by bumping up the performance and adding a new dual camera setup that was only previously available with Note 8. Overall, they are almost evenly matched in terms of features.
