Laminate in hallway: last row?

What is the best method to put laminate (quick lock type) into a hallway when it comes to install the last row regarding the doors?
I won’t be able to slide it under the door jamb and keep the angle to get it properly locked with the previous row
*) Should I cut the upper part of the groove, allowing to slide back the new row flat (without maintaining the angle), and in that case I will need to glue the seam?
*) Or is it better to remove the door trims?
*) Or is there another best option?

The way you said will work fine. I normally shave the bottom of the groove and glue it. use enough glue so that it comes to the surface and wipe the excess off. Use blue tape to hold them together until glue sets up.

blue tape is enough to maintain it with sufficient strength?

YES it is enough
