"Olá" ou "Oi"

Olá - mais utilizado no português de Portugal.

Ola or oi!


Explanation:
Contemporary portuguese both in Portugal and Brazil is becoming similar( just ask any teenager in both countries!)
It will depend more on the context: ola is a little more polite and oi a little more casual! Just like Hello and Hi!
